Hey, I’m still kind of new to the haven, have had posts here and there….

Any way down to it, I just added a Recon Spring to my Stock Ls, and I tried putting it back together, and I can arm the gun once and fire, but the bolt gets stuck forward, so I reopened up the gun and found out (With the help of CS’s Long shot Internals pic) that the Bolt Lock is preventing the long bottom piece of the bolt sled from coming back.

What did I do wrong? Am I missing a piece? And yes I have tried typing in my problem in the search engine in many different ways
“Bolt-Sled Problems”
“Long shot fires once”
Etc.

And yes i went to the "Modifying a Longshot?" Thread

I would post Pictures, but I have no camera, sorry.

Anyone help?

Aloha for the Help!,

Don't tighten the screw that hold the bolt lock too much, the bolt lock needs to move freely.

Does the plunger move all the way forward or is there something stopping it short and preventing the plunger rod from resetting the bolt-lock?

The catch is what keeps the gun primed. The bolt lock prevents you from moving the slide back again after you have armed it. Take it out, as it serves no real purpose, as we here at the Haven can remember if we've primed our guns already.

I also removed the trigger lock, which actually has some use. But as long as you're careful, that might be the last source of your problem. You might also should just double check to make sure you're putting the plunger tube in right and all.

Ok kind of a new problem now, i can arm the gun and fire fine, but for some reason it is harder to cock the gun when pulling in the right side then the left (Looking at the longshot as if you were aiming it)

That's normal when you put a beefier spring in, don't worry.

No, its not that. Mine is doing the same thing too. I have to pull from the left side, the right side just won't budge. I've tried to figure out what causes this strange phenomenon, but I haven't found anything yet.

If he is right handed and it is harder to cock from the right side, in theory shouln't it be easier?

The right side not cocking thing is totally normal though. Besides your right hand is on the handle, so in order to cock from the right side, would be akward to cock with your left hand, to say the least.

I lubed it again and again, I don't see what an extra 2 centimeters does. I don't think I will cut it off.

1. Make absolutely sure the plunger tube is seated properly. There is a little nub on the right side that has to be inserted into a cup in the blaster shell.
2. If you add a stronger spring to the plunger you MUST add a stronger spring to the trigger plate as well.
3. Are you sure the springs are not binding against each other? They both have a rather large diameter and most of the springs added to a longshot are typically smaller in diameter so that they fit snugly on the plunger rod.
4. Are you sure the plunger rod is even reaching the trigger plate?

This might be a similar problem to ones I've had in the past. Open up your plunger and make sure that the disc holding the rubber gasket is screwed tightly to the plunger post. If it isn't then the bolt cant advance forward enough for the bolt lock to disengage. I hope this helps. If you find that this problem occurs often then you should put a light ring of hot glue around the screw to keep it from popping loose. Good Luck.

Do you hold the gun with your non-dominate hand?

I have considered that i am right handed, but MY Left hand is my weaker, so if i'm stronger with my right, i should be able to pull the Plunger back with ease, right? (No Pun Intended)

Anyway, bullet dragon awnsered my question, thanks all for your input

1. Going to Try that Tomorrow (It's 2:00 in the morning here )
2. What kind of spring do you use for this ( Any springs from guns?)
3. Binding, got to check that
4.I think it is, i mean if it did not, then the Gun would not be able to fire right?
